Uckfield Lions Club members who held their annual classic car run yesterday.

More than 100 classic cars join Uckfield Lions outing

More than 100 vehicles took part in an Uckfield Lions Classic Car Run yesterday.

Drivers and passengers braved wet and blustery weather to ride through the Sussex countryside up through Maresfield, then across the Ashdown Forest to Snow Hill Garden Centre, and back again via Ardingly and Lindfield.

Organisers said that in the 16 years of running this event this is only the second to have had such bad weather.

The day started with coffee at The Halfway House, on Lewes Road, Isfield, and the motorists returned there for a pig roast lunch.

Wealden Works

The Lions hold the event each year for charity and this year all profits will go to Wealden Works, a scheme for helping young people to get into work.

The Lions said a big thank you to Mel and Rowan who allowed the Lions the use of The Halfway House and its grounds, and Aworth Survey Consultants who provided maps for entrants to use.
